The Amazing Coat Sew Along- The Muslin
a) The fit in the neck, shoulders and upper back was good. A slope shoulder adjustment is a must for me. Correction- ½ inch slope shoulder adjustment
b) The fit from the bust to the hip was snug. Correction- add 5/8- from the armhole to the hem
c) Add 3-inches to the length
d) Remove ½-inch from the back shoulder and add ½-inch to the front shoulder e) Add ¼ to the center back seam
